Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide bedding?

Of course! We provide all bedding, including luxurious sheets, pillows, down comforter, and blankets.

Do you provide towels and toiletries?

We always provide washcloths and hand towels. When the seasonal outdoor showers are operational (mid-April through Mid-November), we provide fluffy towels, spa robes, sandals, and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

Is firewood provided?

You bet! We provide firewood both for the wood-stove inside the tent and for the fire pit outside. 

What time is check-in and check-out?

Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is at 11am. Depending on availability, we may be able to offer and early check-in or a late check-out for a $25 fee.

How far are the camps from the parking area?

Each camp is about a 4-5 minute walk from the parking area along a gravel path. We will greet you and shuttle you and your things to camp for both check-in and check-out. 

Are additional people accommodated at camp? What about kids or babies?

We designed this experience as a getaway for two adults. If you have a little one young enough to sleep in a pack-n-play, you are welcome to bring them along. This is only recommended in the warmer months. 

Are there cooking facilities?

We do not provide any cooking facilities. Guests are welcome to bring ready-made food, take-out, or their own camping stove. We also have a small-but-decadant room service menu (further details with your reservation confirmation).

Is there electricity at the camp?

Yes! The camps are battery-powered and there are outlets to charge your devices and electric lighting. No hot tools (hair dryers, etc) or electric heaters, please! 

How about running water and a flushing toilet?

The camps are totally totally off-grid and there is no running water and therefore no flushing toilet. We use composting toilets that are immaculate and effective with no odor. We provide water for the safari sinks in the bathroom, drinking water in the tent, and the outdoor shower. We will replenish your supply as many times as needed.  Our seasonal outdoor showers (available mid-April-mid-November) have hot, running water. 

Is there cell-service? Wi-Fi?

Miraculously, there is excellent cell service in the glade! We do not have Wi-Fi at Highwood Retreat.

How many camps are there?

There are two unique camps in our secluded glade. Our third camp will be opening Winter 2025. Follow our Instagram (@highwoodretreat) for updates!
